Well, when stuck in a moral dilemma, she did say “Thank God” for an interruption. Not the answer to prayer that she’d hoped for, but definitely guidance.
LOL—thanks for the compliment, but I am quite sure I am neither Teafanny nor related in any way.
The secret would be that Gunther didn’t spend the night at home. Sneaking in is to make it look like he came home earlier, while Les was asleep.
Fitting indeed, that this week should peak with Brad and Toni on St. Valentine’s Day. But the week’s not over yet. I foresee , on February 15, the first dawn light streaking the sky when a car parks by a certain bachelor cottage. In the second panel, we see a silent silhouette taking shoes off at the door and discretely slipping into the dark house. 3rd panel: Les in pajamas throws on the light to reveal a startled, disheveled Gunther, but all Les says is, “I won’t tell Luann.”
That would leave no room for the punchline.
I think he’s depicting Luann as forgetful, and self-pitying.
May next year see you happily in the arms of a valentine who suits you!
And yes, there really is such a thing!
If reality means the actual planet and how it works, then she’s more in touch with reality than most. Out of touch is when you can’t see beyond the pavement and other artificial constructs overlaid onto reality. And I have to confess that I would probably find annoying the sort of out-of-touch person who would find her annoying.
So, the only guy to ever valentine her is the one she calls names?
